Reb Zalman

I heard the news today about the passing of an icon in the Jewish community, whose reach exceeded ‘the tribe’ into which he was born. An emissary of peace, an interfaith advocate and a fellow ‘Holy Rascal’, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi took […]


Freedom vs. Safety

Yesterday, I was interviewed on the  How To Be A Holy Rascal radio show hosted by my friend Rabbi Rami Shapiro on Unity.FM Radio. Rami and I have known each others since the early 1990’s. I sense that the Cosmic […]

Being In The Flow of Life

What Would Yoda Say?
Although he is a fictional character created by Muppeteers Frank Oz and Jim Henson, Yoda remains my favorite little green sage. His wisdom is exemplary and in his death, he melted back into the Force, as I believe we all do. One of the most ...
